Hello New Onboarding Interns!

In the next few days, after completing the survey, you should receive emails and invites to your new @pgip-tech.com email address. You will not be able to access the PGIP-Tech system and SharePoint Orientation site until you have completed the activation. Follow these steps below to get started and obtain your access.
Onboarding Checklist

#1. Checklist & Survey

You will receive a welcome letter in your student.purdueglobal email telling you to download a checklist and complete the New Intern Survey to assign you a department. The checklist will list for you what tasks need to be completed during your first onboarding week in PGIP-Technology.
